Plan B: Terraform – All Resources Supply Chains and Ratios
All the numbers for how it’s made from basic materials to top tech.
Below are tables of production and resource demand to keep 1 production building active at max capacity for 1 game year.
These figures DON’T take into account bottlenecks with Transport or insufficient drones.
I have collected all the numbers right down to how many extractors are needed to run a Composite factory or a Pumping Station.
However, keeping that all neat and readable means I can only add in Raw material extraction rates for the more basic resources. If you like me to add a section that just lists extraction types and rates for everything I can do that.
Composite basic resource extraction is :
- 120 Iron – 8 Excavators
- 10 Nitrogen – 2 Ice Extractors
- 90 Carbon – 7.5 Atmospheric Extractors
Pumping Station :
- 72 Sulfur – 4.8 Excavators
- 72 Iron – 4.8 Excavators
- 16 Alum Ore – 1.06 Excavators
- 12 carbon – 1 Atmospheric Extractor
All info presented was collected by hand from a completed game, on the first early access version and as such is subject to change or error.
I will try to present a lot of numbers and information in the neatest and most readable way I can.
Basic Raw Material Production Rates
Raw Materials are mined with an Excavator on mineral fields or specialist buildings that become unlocked during the game.
Production Rates are given in produced Per game year
|Raw Resource||Extraction Rate||Extractor|
Most game resources are produced in the factory.
Product rate is given in Produced per Game year.
For raw resources, the number of extractors is listed in the Factory’s column.
|Product||Produced||Resource 1||Factorys||Resource 2||Factorys|
|Steel||30||90 Iron||6 Excavator|
|Concrete||30||90 Sulfur||6 Excavator|
|Aluminum Bar||30||60 Aluminum Ore||4 Excavator|
|Mechanical Parts||30||30 Steel||1|
|Reinforced Concrete||30||30 Concrete||1||30 Steel||1|
|Polymer||30||90 Carbon||7.5 Atmospheric
|Hightech Parts||90||60 Aluminum||2||30 Polymer||1|
|Compost||30||60 Carbon||5 Atmospheric
|30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractor|
|Tempered Steel||90||120 Steel||4||30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractor|
|Composite||30||30 Tempered Steel||0.33||30 Polymer||1|
The amount of recyclable Waste will increase over time as the cities get bigger.
You can see its yearly Waste amount by selecting the Waste Disposal building.
While the Waste Disposal will fill with all types of waste you can process it from different waste disposal buildings so don’t feel pressured into fitting all the outputs into just one area.
Production rates are given in Produced per Game year
|Output 1||Output 2||Waste||Resource||Factory|
|60 Steel||30 Aluminum||180 Metal|
|30 Polymer||60 Plastic|
|30 Compost||5 Organic||30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractor|
Greenhouse – Keeping People Fed.
Greenhouse has the Sole purpose of making food for the big cities and the main consumer of water. All inputs can be traced to Raw resources.
Table shows everything to be Self Sustaining.
Production rates Given in Production per Game year
|Produced||Resource 1||Source||Resource 2||Factory|
|60 Food||120 Water||4 Water Pump
24 Ice Extractor
|30 Compost||1 Factory
1 Recycle Plant
|Produced||Resource 1||Factorys||Resource 2||Factorys|
|30 Compost||60 Carbon||5 Atmospheric Extractor||30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractors|
|30 Compost||150 Organic Waste||City Waste||30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractors|
This section is for things that make the planet a nicer place to live. Greenhouse gases and pretty green trees.
|Product||Resource 1||Factorys||Resource 2||Factorys|
|30 NF3||30 Nitrogen||6 Ice Extractor||30 Fluorite||2 Excavator|
|30 SF6||30 Sulfer||2 Excavator||30 Fluorite||2 Excavator|
|12 Pine Tree||36 Carbon||3 Atmospheric Extractor||12 Water||2.4 Ice Extractor
0.4 Water Pump
|12 Eucalyptus Tree||36 Carbon||3 Atmospheric Extractor||12 Water||2.4 Ice Extractor
0.4 Water Pump
Do you really want to have your buildings being made at full tilt? Well here are the numbers anyway..

I’m glad that’s over, It took far to long fix spelling errors and formatting. (for some reason I kept marking mechanical parts as 3 steel instead of 1 so that got confusing)
Still, I hope it helped just a little if so it was worth the time. Remember all Info taken from the First Early Access version so subject to change.
It’s a shame I couldn’t fit all my gathered info into nice neat tables but my notes are not exactly user-friendly.
12 pumping stations – 2 reinforced concrete, 1 high tech parts – 24 reinforced concrete(0.8), 12 high tech parts(0.13) – 24 concrete(0.8), 24 steel(0.8),8 Alum(0.26) 4 polymer(0.13) – 72 sulfer 4.8 exv, 72 iron 4.8 exv, 16 alum ore 1.06 exv, 12 carbon 1 atmos
But if you think a total breakdown like this would be useful id certainly consider it.
